Why You Should Always Secure Your Domain Name

Fahrenheit Marketing in Design

A recent Mashable article got us laughing, and reminded us that the sooner you secure your treasured domain name, the better. Guy Fieri, the popular Food Network personality, learned that lesson the hard way.

Guy Fieri is best known for his show Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. He owns a restaurant called Guy’s American Kitchen and Bar in New York City — but he doesn’t own the domain name. Instead, Bryan Mytko, an NYC-based programmer, owns GuysAmericanKitchenAndBar.com, where he shares his own interpretation of Guy’s menu.

Here are some of our favorite selections from the site’s parody menu:

  • Football: The Meal: “Warm, broken hamburgers served in a clear, plastic bag enclosed in a larger black trash bag. Thrown at you from 40 yards. ”
  • The Olive Garden: “22 pounds of wine-stunned Kalamata olives tumbled over chopped iceberg lettuce and served in a trough family-style. Ranch hose optional, but recommended.”
  • Honky-Tonky Double Barrel Meat Loaded Blast: “A Sammy Hagar lookalike pushes your face into a leather bag filled with oil and if you eat the whole thing, you get to eat a 13 pound burger.”

It’s all fun and games unless it’s your domain name at stake. If you are in the midst of choosing your own domain name, it can be difficult, especially if your first-choice is already taken. The Fahrenheit Marketing team knows all the best practices when it comes to choosing simple domain names that set your company apart.
